How do I add an unscheduled timesheet for an employee? (Desktop)

Modified on Wed, 24 Jan at 8:52 AM

No matter how carefully you plan your schedule there's always a chance that you'll occasionally need to pull someone in for an unexpected shift at the last minute. If you do, it's probably a good idea to add a timesheet entry for them or to ask them to create one themselves, rather than hoping that they'll work for free. We like your optimism though.

  1. Head over to the timesheets page by clicking on the 'Timesheets' navigation item on the left of your screen. 

  2. Use the pay period selector above the employee menu to select the period you want to add a timesheet. A period with a green padlock icon is locked and new timesheets cannot be added to it unless unlocked.

  3. Find the employee you need to create a timesheet for in the menu. The filters and search can be used to make this quicker if you have a long list of employees. Click on the employee to view their timesheets.

  4. Find the date the timesheet needs to be created for and then hover over the row. On the left, a blue plus action menu will appear. Clicking on it will open a menu with the option to “Add Time Entry”.

  5. This option will open a dialog with a form to manually create a timesheet entry. Once you’ve entered the correct details for the shift they worked, click “Add Time Entry” at the bottom of the dialog to confirm.

  6. If you’ve made a mistake in the new entry, you can always “Delete” or “Edit” it from the action menu on the right of the timesheet row.
